This tells of the journey of a boy from a remote village, that went from riding a bullock cart to owning an airline. It narrates in gritty detail Captain Gopinath's incredible journey: quitting the Indian Army in the late 1970s with a princely gratuity of Rs. 6500, going back to his farm land inundated by the river, converting of piece of barren land to set up a farm for ecologically sustainable silkworm rearing, and winning a Rolex award for it. From there he went on to launch an airline that would make $1.1 billion dollars in less than four years.
